This week I attended MWLUG in Alexandria, VA. This was an awesome event, so many good speakers, good content and excellent camaraderie. I can’t say it enough, but Richard Moy and his team put on such a good event. So, I spoke to a couple of developers who are writing client JavaScript in Domino Designer. While Domino Designer is capable of allowing you to write JavaScript, all I can say is STOP! Stop torturing yourself, Stop making it harder on yourself to write good JavaScript. There are

Goodbye Evernote
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 5:22p   Keith Strickland
I’ve been using Evernote for a few years now and have enjoyed it’s feature set and the ability to plan and document a complex project (namely home/shop projects) with shopping lists, ideas, etc. But recently every time I attempt to use Evernote to create a quick note or maybe just jot something down, I’m presented with a request to upgrade to a pay plan, or to update or just general advertising. I can no longer just open it and create a note. Because of this, I have now backed

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!! I hope everyone is having a great holiday. I thought now might be a good time to look back over the year and review some of the technology I’ve dealt with. Surface Pro 4: Last year I got a Surface Pro 4 tablet. I started the process of switching to it instead of my aging MacBook Pro. While I REALLY like the hardware and how everything works there were just a few issues which got on my nerves so bad I couldn’t ever completely make the switch. As far as performance, I

Visual Studio Code Editor

I’ve been using the Visual Studio Code editor for the last couple of weeks and thought I would share my experience. I’ve mainly used this in a plain ‘ole polymer application which consists of html files. Using the editor this way has shown some of it’s shortcomings. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a fine editor and has a lot of features I really like. However with CSS, HTML and JavaScript all residing in the same file, a lot of the typeahead features just don

Work with Rich Text from DDS
Fri, Oct 21st 2016 5:33p   Keith Strickland
So you’ve created your shiny new web application using DDS and everything is really cool, except for the display of rich text. You’ve figured out that there is a multipart MIME object in the JSON delivered by DDS, and it has the HTML in that, but it still looks crappy. It has tags littered throughout and just doesn’t look good. Well, I think I’ve got the solution for you. If you look at that multipart MIME Object and find the ‘text/html’ entry you’ll not

A Polymer Avatar component
Wed, Oct 12th 2016 5:50p   Keith Strickland
At MWLUG a lot of people seemed surprised that I would create a component just for an avatar. My response to that is why wouldn’t you build an avatar component? So, in this post I’m going to show you how to build one for your applications. Let’s start out with the use case. We want to show an avatar for a person in various locations throughout our application. This avatar should do a few different things: Should show a picture of a person if one is attached to their person do
